Default Re: i7 vs Intel Core 2 Quad, is it worth it

Well, going by the graph, you could go for an i7 build and grab a cheap workstation card that still works well:

Newegg.com - ATI 100-505507 FireGL V3600 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Workstation Video Card - Workstation Graphics / Video Cards

It's got less than half the performance in Maya as the 7700, but it's also over 600 bucks cheaper. The performance is still adequate.
